2  Can I bring my pet to the crematorium?
Yes. If your pet has passed away at home or you decide not to leave your pet in the care of your veterinarian you may wish to bring your pet to the crematorium yourself.
We simply ask you to contact us to make arrangements and we will give you a heartfelt welcome.
3  If my pet is ‘put to sleep’ at the vet’s, can I select where my pet is cremated?
The aftercare you want for your pet is a personal decision that only you and/or your family can make. We have arrangements with many veterinary practices and you can inform your vet how you want your pet to be cared for and by whom.
We are happy to collect your pet from your veterinary practice even if your vet does not have an arrangement with us.
Ask your vet to contact us on 01706 213810 on your behalf.
4  How and when should I pay for the cremation?

5  What do cremation professionals do?
Cremation professionals are both custodians and administrators. In their administrative duties, they make the arrangements for your pet’s cremation with you, completing and checking any necessary paperwork, liaising with your vet and implementing the choices you have made. As custodians, cremation professionals are there to listen, advise, guide and support. They have much experience assisting bereaved pet owners who are experiencing loss.
Our cremation professionals are animal lovers and many are, or have been, pet owners themselves. Most have years of experience or have undertaken qualifications such as The Blue Cross Pet Bereavement Support Service course.
